The Battle is Not Yours 
by Rick Boxx
November 24, 2009

Steps of faith increase our dependence upon God, but some steps are bigger than others. It was huge for Michael Franzese to leave organized crime to follow Jesus, but an even bigger step was when God asked Michael to speak publicly about his life as a former Columbo Crime family captain.

Michael is still alive and has been letting God fight his battles against the mob since 1995.

King Jehoshaphat also faced overwhelming odds in 2 Chronicles 20, but God encouraged him through a prophet in verse 15, "This is what the Lord says to you:" said the prophet, "Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's."

If you're facing adversity, remember, the battle is not yours!
